on stolen firearms. apparently, conservatives believe this is tyranny. today vice president joe biden detailed one of the major initiatives of the president's gun proposals. >> how do we make our streets and schools safer? with regard to our streets i believe and the president believes that cops make a difference. we're going to push again for another $4 billion in grants for the cops program. >> $4 billion for more cops on the streets and around schools in america? this is what the gun lobby was demanding. but the gun nuts, well, they're not so happy. texas governor rick perry is trying to push himself into relevance again. he said in a statement the second amendment of the constitution is a basic right of free people and cannot be nor will it be abridged by the executive power of this or any other president. kind of threatening, is it? the national -- the republican national committee wrote, "president obama's series of gun control measures amount to an executive power grab." really? these statements did not mention a single action or proposal by the president. they call these measu
